The 2016 Winter Simulation Conference (WSC) has been the premier international forum for disseminating recent advances in the field of systems simulation for almost 50 years. The longest-running conference devoted to simulation as a discipline, this year’s WSC will be held on Dec. 11-14 at the Crystal Gateway in Arlington, Va., just outside of Washington, D.C. The theme for WSC 2016 is “Simulating Complex Service Systems.”

WSC is designed for professionals and academics from all backgrounds and across a broad range of interests. Academic tracks include analysis methodology, modeling methodology, simulation optimization, agent-based simulation and hybrid simulations. Applied uses of simulation include social and behavioral simulation, defense and security, modeling and analysis of semiconductor manufacturing, healthcare applications, logistics, manufacturing applications, networks and communications, project management and construction, environmental and sustainability applications, and general applications. Additionally, WSC features introductory and advanced tutorials, simulation education, case studies, Ph.D. colloquia, poster sessions, an extensive group of exhibitors and vendor tutorials. Along with the lineup of tracks and speakers, WSC 2016 will also have a special cross-fertilization track.

WSC 2016 is sponsored by technical co-sponsors ACM/SIGSIM, ASA, ASIM, IEEE/SMC and NIST, along with IIE, INFORMS-SIM and SCS.

Study: Salaries for early career data scientists decrease for first time

Salaries for early career data scientists decreased year over year for the first time in four years as did the percentage of early career data scientists with a Ph.D. while demand for data scientists continued to increase, according to a recently released Burtch Works’ 2017 salary study of data scientists. Salaries for more experienced data scientists generally held steady or increased slightly depending on an individual’s focus area, responsibility and geographic base, according to the report.

Generous health insurance plans encourage overtreatment, but may not improve health

Offering comprehensive health insurance plans with low deductibles and co-pay in exchange for higher annual premiums seems like a good value for the risk averse, and a profitable product for insurance companies. But according to a forthcoming study in a leading scholarly marketing journal, the INFORMS journal Marketing Science, such plans can encourage individuals with chronic conditions to turn to needlessly expensive treatments that have little impact on their health outcomes. This in turn raises costs for the insurer and future prices for the insured. Read more →
